the actual flow rate once and for all. under u.s. law, bp would be fined up to $4,300 per barrel per day if gross negligence is proven. meaning bp's bill on day 86, using the government's highest estimates, could total more than $22 billion. and bp has been vastly underestimating the size of the spill for months now. at first by a factor of 60. and there's some suspicion that bp may never want an accurate number of that tally ever to surface. ron. >> matt, nearly $22 billion, that is a staggering amount of money. >> reporter: yes, it is, and that doesn't mention the claims from fishermen to stockholders and of course the cleanup. bp has shelled out $3.5 billion so far and more. we're learning that work on the cleanup could continue here for years, ron. >> it could go a lot higher than that $22 billion. thank you, matt gutman. >>> the oil may not be flowing, but there's still a lot of activity going on above the wellhead. reporter ted oberg was on the water today. >> reporter: ron, as the well testing closed in and surpassed the 48-hour mark, it was quiet out here. no recovered oil being
